Having spent the last eight years in West Africa and Vietnam, I can confirm that there are, indeed, other kinds of bananas besides the ones you grow up eating in the US, and that many of them taste way better. Frankly, if a blight destroys the classic Cavendish banana, I think it’ll be a net positive; I see no reason why one couldn’t grow the delicious Vietnamese short-fat banana in Florida and ship it north by rail.
